for pork is obstructing tne prepared
ness legislation in Congress. Chair
man Stephen M. Sparkman of the
Rivers and Harbors Committee is
framing another river and. harbor
pork bill this time one of still great
er dimensions. It is to be for $46,
000,000, he says, and he anticipates
that it will go through the House
even if the plans for enlarged array
and navy fail.
The last Congress, in spite of
efforts at economy, appropriated a
lump sum of $30,000,000 for rivers
and harbors pork, and in' addition in
serted in (he 'sundry civilrbills $27,-
000,00b more. Most of this was ad
mittedly wasted on southern projects
of no present or prospective value.
